We stayed here three time: first when arriving in S.A. before heading to Kruger park, again before our flight to Cape Town, and lastly before returning home. We felt safe here,had comfortable beds and rooms, enjoyed delicious meals, and interacted with friendly, helpful, competent staff. The shuttle to and from the airport was reliable (within 5-10 minutes of being perfectly on-time ). Receptionist arranged for a private transport company to drive us across town for a little last-moment impromptu sightseeing. We had a late flight out. Reception had the availability to extend our checkout for free until noon, then charged us 100 Rand an hour until 2 pm when we shuttled to the airport. No two stays were exactly the same, but I could easily recommend this hotel to family and friends. I will say we tipped accordingly, based on recommendations by tourism sites and that may have improved service. Happy trails!

Shuttle service is great, check-in was fast, bell hop moved our bags to the room, dinner, drinks & dessert were delicious, had a restfull night sleep. Very impressed, especially with the helpful, competent, friendly service.

Airport shuttle van service was convenient, ran often, and was about a 5 minute trip. Room was comfortable. All four of us enjoyed a delicious and affordable meal at the hotels Tin Goose restaurant.

Great bed, styling room,and nice shower. Buffet dinner. breakfast not included and no hair dryr. There is significant air traffic in evening so dont stay if youre sound sensitive.

The workers are friendly and the place is well kept in order. I love their beef pizza. Affordable and a very seren area. Just the best and I recommend to all.

Horrible shuttle service, I almost lost my flight because the shuttle came from another hotel first which works together with them and was full so I almost lost my flight.

The Aviator hotel is close to the airport and has a free shuttle. The rooms are clean and the water hot when showering. Wish breakfast was free but you can purchase for a small fee.

They have a new cooker and we enjoyed rto have diner @ the hotel and many people are very satisfy too

Good hotel. Justifies the cost. Will recommend staying here.

Pleasant hotel with free airport shuttle. Nice room and pool area.

I found the internet to be annoying as it required me me to log on every few minutes making it difficult for me to receive my calls.

Had to stay for a day at airport,promt shuttle service and very capable and friendly staff.Renovations was being done to hotel but all and all a safe stay.

I needed help charging my phone and they helped me. I needed to get food past dinner time and they helped me. Its the little things that count. Great staff with great personalities.

Nice hotel conveniently located. Easy to find free shuttle to hotel at bus terminal behind the Intercontinental. Driver even took me to nearby Mcdonald's. Great buffet breakfast every morning. Wish I'd been able to check in earlier and check out later though. Decent stay for the price.

Very prompt and pleasant pickup from airport and short drive. Check in was complicated and long. Room was cold, noisy and bathroom had lots of mildew.

This place was great-clean, comfortable, free breakfast, free shuttle to the airport or train station, good food, ...... We stayed here 3 different times because we used Johannesburg as a hub. I highly recommend it. They even have a lock room for your luggage

This hotel is perfect for the night you arrive or the night or two before you leave. It is 5 minutes to the airport, has a 24 hour free shuttle to the airport, is completely fenced in (as the area near the airport isnt the best), has a great pool, nice bar, good restaurant, friendly staff and clean rooms. They even have a few tour operators who have flyers in their lobby and the receptionist is happy to book a tour for you (which we took advantage of and did a great day tour to Lesedi cultural village with Swangstours).

This was a great hotel to visit. Loved the pinup look and all the aircraft features. Great breakfast buffet. Decor was really nice and the room was comfortable. The area in Johannesburg was a little on the worrying side but I have a feeling that most of Johannesburg is like this and the hotel was really good about security and protection. We would visit again.

First off, this hotel looks and is designed like a prison compound from the moment you reach the GUARDED gate. It's in a very sketchy neighborhood near JNB airport. Now that that's out of the way, our stay was actually great. the staff are very friendly, the decor is pretty cool once you get past the prison-esque building style, and the room was perfectly adequate for our one night stay. the breakfast was good as well.
